New York Law School and Harvard Law School are hosting a year-long contest of ideas about legal education. The kickoff event is a two-day conference for educators, employers, clients, and regulators at New York Law School on April 9-10, 2010, to identify problems, innovations and constraints, and to organize working groups to develop designs and strategies for implementation. Working groups will refine their ideas and reconvene for a second meeting at Harvard Law School on October 15–16, 2010. Final designs will be presented, with commentary, at New York Law School in April 2011.
